Fun at the luau.........

We had a luau today for our ward activation activity. They pinned real palm leaves on the walls and had beautiful colorful tablecloths on the tables. We ate pulled pork, chips, and salads. The Hollywood Ward (Bishop Hoope's Ward - Jeremy) did the entertainment with lots of hula dancing and numbers from Saoma, Tonga and Figi. Jessica's baptism followed.

The Lord's work continues to increase here in Southern Florida. This weekend we had 20 baptisms scheduled, although not all of them will actually take place.
We had a baptism today for Jessica Martin, who is a 23 year old granddaughter of the couple that Tim and I are working with. Her Grandma will probably be baptized soon but her Grandpa is holding out until he can be totally committed. He loves the church and the people so we will continue to work on him. We are going out to dinner with them on Monday evening. This last week was zone conferences and we were able to attend one near Miami. We talked about our purpose as a missionary – to baptize! The President said that Miami was the largest metropolitan area that didn’t have a temple so we are working really hard.
